The challenge continues!  Aaron's on day 20 of the 30-day Samsung Galaxy S III Challenge, and so far, so good.  20 days in, battery life continues to be acceptable (though the international version does better in said department) and AT&T's 4G LTE connectivity is a nice feature to have, even if it means no quad-core Exynos CPU.  The international version is a bit more fluid, but the US variant is still zippy and packs goodies that make it worth considering over the global build.

Thanks for your participation! :)

Anonymous I have both phones. Both have some features that are superior to the other. But overall, if I had to choose one over the other I would take the Galaxy S3 because of 1. Expandable memory, 2. Higher Resolution Contact Photos 3. Bigger & Replaceable battery although both are very good. 4. S. Beam (which I haven't used yet but I think its pretty cool. 5. I absolutely hate the on/off button on the HTC One X. I think it's a total design flaw.
Anonymous Galaxy s3 all day everyday the One X is cool but the non removable + no expandable memory= no deal
Bikal Kumar Basnet
Bikal Kumar Basnet without no doubt samsung galaxy s3.....the best phone ever.... :D
marcos_paulocs SGS3 is a really great phone, but I would not change my (stolen) HTC One X for it
Harry Smith
Harry Smith S3 all the way!
Gaurav Bhardwaj
Gaurav Bhardwaj S3 ftw..
Anonymous One X, the horribly ugly physical button on the S3 is a deal breaker in itself, piling on Samsung's amazing update history makes it an easy choice
Ruben Romero
Ruben Romero One x no doubt...
Tyler Kirchman
Tyler Kirchman ONE X. i trust HTC with my 4.1 update more than samsung. H8 my skyrocket
lb_dlb_dl HTC One X and HTC evo 4g lte. The samsung plasticky s3 is for teenage boys who feel the need to show off the specs sheet to make them feel better.

Navdeep Baidwan S 3 has nice features but most of the features are only one time use ... They will not he used on a daily bases to ease out things ... So they are pointless...I personally like the one x because of its camera quality.. display... Desigh... Performance and sense 4.0

Sylbert Joseph
Sylbert Joseph If we're talking about design and feel, I'd have to go with the one x. On the other hand, the s3 performs better than the one x hands down. No lag no freezing. IMO performance > design

John Zanatta
John Zanatta I would choose the One X over the S3. Right now though neither can sway me off the Galaxy Nexus. Not saying I wouldn't take one for free, but not paying for one.
Christopher D. Rhyne
Christopher D. Rhyne I prefer my HTC One X. Reason being is I don't have time to be tinkering around with roms anymore lol. Had my share of rooting and roms with my Captivate. If you plan to stay stock I vote HTC if you plan to root I.vote sgs 3

Justin John Litz Van
Justin John Litz Van I would've said the one x but I'm exchanging it for the siii due to WiFi issues & I wasn't given the 25gb of dropbox storage. So I guess my vote is for the siii.
ShehrYar Asghar
ShehrYar Asghar Still, both are great phones, personally, I prefer the HTC One X, but that's only my opinion, both phones are the kings if android right now... the main reason I like the One X is because of it's beautiful body..... the iPhone 4s? You've got to be kidding me

Tonio Johnson
Tonio Johnson S3. Simply because I know by the time I get it, the dev I get Rom's from will already have his and have stuff ready to go. Plus I can't go without a removable battery yet. They short out, your phone is gone, some droid razr's have done that at my job already.
